about the only way I know to catch those fast little buggers is to remove all the rock
and use a 12"inch diameter net
it's no picnic that's for sure

This is really demotivating as this will break down all the lives built in the rocks and growing caroline algae

as long as the rock is kept wet it should be fine once you remove the fish the rock can go back in
if you want to try to keep the same scape you may want to chart out how the rock was removed so you can follow it in reverse when rescaping remember also take a pict to follow to it helps
who knows you may get a better scape out of it

I don't want to rush thing and make mistakes. I will wait for 24 hours to see the progress because there were 4 big spots and now there are two big spots, one flat spot and one is gone. The fish is active and eating.

Spots disappearing off a fish are not a sign of being free of ich. We are only able to see the cyst stage in ich's life cycle. It also has a stage where it lives in the sand and matures before swimming up to infect more fish.
How are things looking now?
